“Adding Light: Up From Darkness in Gouache and Acrylic”
November 20-21, 2017
Here’s what Beth says about her class, “Adding Light: Up from Darkness in Gouache and Acrylic”: When one adds color to a black substrate, the darkest (or almost darkest) value is already established, so one can focus on adding light, a fun adventure in negative space! I will show you a couple of my favorite ways of working “up” from the darkest value. My processes apply in both abstract and representational work. I’ll offer texturing, glazing and light-over-dark techniques to create what I call “jazz” as well as more traditional representational works, and hope everyone will enjoy trying some of these, or forging their own paths, with some provided materials as well as what you bring with you.
Sign-up begins at the September 26 general meeting. A deposit of $50 cash or check (made out to Seattle CoArts) is required to hold your spot. Participation will be limited to 20, and members have priority. Member cost for the class is $100.
UPDATE: There are a few spaces available!
